* [[TheAtoner Siegfried Schtauffen]] from the ''VideoGame/SoulCalibur'' certainly evokes the image following his HeelFaceTurn in ''III''. By ''IV'', he even gets a suit of crystalline armor to go with his UnholyHolySword to help him fight against [[EvilWeapon Soul Edge]].

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheDrunkenPaladin'' has Anebriate, who is the titular paladin. Unlike most paladins, he uses lightning-based attacks, heals via junk food summoning spells, and starts the game as a PunchClockHero and a {{Hedonist}}. After some CharacterDevelopment, he's still not the ideal paladin, but he's more willing to do good for its own sake regardless of rewards.

* There is a Paladin class in the {{Ultima}} series (at least until the later games where it gets merged into Fighter), which is the class associated with the virtue of Honor. But the Avatar himself also fits most of the criteria for the Paladin trope, and is the page image. Though in the context of the game it's from, the image is [[spoiler:actually a KickTheDog moment for the Avatar]].

* Dupre the paladin is one of the Avatar's companions in the ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' series. [[spoiler:He makes the HeroicSacrifice to restore the Chaos Serpent in ''Ultima VII Part II: Serpent Isle'', but is brought back to life in ''Ultima IX'']].

* The Paladins in ''VideoGame/QuestForGlory'' differ from the standard version trope in that they are openly NeutralGood from the start; the Paladin mentor Rakeesh defied the rule of law in his homeland because he thought it was narrow-minded and would only cause a needless war. The Paladin class is unlocked at the end of ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryII'' if you finish the game with high enough [[KarmaMeter Honor]], and is effectively a Fighter with nice bonuses like HealingHands, protection from evil, and [[MySignificanceSenseIsTingling a danger sense]], plus some optional quests that go above and beyond the main plot. In ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryIII'' he becomes an outright MagicKnight, when unlocking the Heal ability adds the Magic skill[[note]]VideoGame/QuestForGloryIV'' takes it a step further thanks to a programming oversight: because Paladins have points in the Magic skill, the game hands them '''all''' of the spells a Wizard would have at that point in the game[[/note]].

* The word "Paladin" comes from the Palatine Hill in Rome[[note]]also the source of the word "palace"[[/note]], which in ancient times was where the Emperor and his highest officials officiated. Being a ''palatinus'' was about official authority, not about skill as a warrior or devotion to righteousness. In the middle ages ''palatinus'' became "paladin"[[note]] although words like "Palatine" and "Palatinate" continued to be used[[/note]], and in chivalric epic poems became applied to Twelve Paladins or Twelve Peers of Emperor Charlemagne. In the cycle of epics known as the ''matière de la France'' ("matter of France"), which includes the French ''Literature/TheSongOfRoland'', the German ''Willehalm'' by [[Literature/{{Parzival}} Wolfram of Eschenbach]] and the Italian ''Literature/OrlandoFurioso'', where the paladins became idealized symbols of courage and purity.

* In ''{{Rift}}'', paladin is a warrior "[[StoneWall defensive soul]]" with some WhiteMagic abilities. While [[SeekerArchetype Amardis Mathos]] (the original in-universe paladin) certainly fit the usual profile, it's implied that not every paladin does.
